A Twitter account belonging to Connor Betts, the alleged Dayton, Ohio shooter who shot and killed 9 and injured at least 20 more, was apparently a far leftist who condemned conservatives as “Nazis” and “fascists” who deserve to die.
Heavy confirms the Twitter account @iamthespookster belonged to the deceased alleged Dayton shooter who went on a shooting spree earlier today. On the Twitter, Betts advocated socialism, gun control, said conservatives are “Nazis” who deserve to die, and told his followers to “vote blue for gods sake”.
Authorities now say that Betts, 24, of Bellbrook, Ohio, donned body armor and a mask before shooting and killing 9 people outside a Dayton bar, including his own sister. At least 27 people were injured. Police say the motive is unclear. You can read tributes to the victims here.
Some of the most absurd tweets include this call for violence against Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
In another Tweet, Betts said that any user who is “nazi-friendly or adjactent” should “f**king unfollow me cuz nazis deserve death and nothing else”.
Strangely, Betts also advocated for gun control in an argument, saying that “You can’t kill 50+ people and injure 600(!) In 10 minutes with cigarettes my dude”.
Two months ago, Betts advocated socialism in a response to David Rothkopf, writing “I want socialism, and I’ll not wait for the idiots to finally come round to understanding”.
Betts also blamed the Q Anon movement for inspiring violence, even though it has yet to inspire any widespread terrorism, writing that “minus a mob boss and whoever the MAGABomber tried to kill, no fatalities.. yet.”
On his Twitter bio, Betts describes himself as “he/him / anime fan / metalhead / leftist” and adds that he is “going to hell and i’m not coming back”.
In addition to these tweets, Big League Politics reports that Betts previously praised the infamous Antifa firebomber who attacked a migrant detention facility armed with an AR-15 and Molotov cocktails.
On his Twitter account, Dayton mass shooter Connor Betts praised the actions of a man named Willem Van Spronsen who attempted to firebomb an ICE facility while carrying an AR-15.
On Betts’ purported account, in which he identifies as “he/him / anime fan / metalhead / leftist / i’m going to hell and i’m not coming back“, he also described ICE detention facilities like the one Spronsen attacked as “concentration camps.”
Spronsen ultimately didn’t injure anyone in his martyr-style attack on the Tacoma, Washington immigration detention facility. He was shot by police after deploying a crude incendiary device against the building.
Big League Politics reported earlier today that Betts was a registered Democrat who voted in the 2016 and 2018 Democratic Primaries:
The Greene County Board of Elections reveals Betts began voting in 2012, and next voted in the Democratic Party Ohio Primary on March 15 of 2016. After voting in the 2016 General Election, Betts later voted in the 2018 Democratic Party Primary on May 8, 2018. Betts voted in a total of 7 elections, including Democratic Primaries.
After finding this information, Big League Politics cross referenced the data with other publicly available information from the Ohio Secretary of State, which confirms his address, polling location, and other voter information.
This is a breaking news story. Big League Politics will continue to post updates as they become available.
Florida Senator Moving to Designate “Donald J. Trump Highway” in Honor of 45th President
One of the greatest presidents in American history.
Florida State Senator Anthony Sabatini will move to rename a highway in the state “Donald J. Trump Highway,” in honor of the 45th President.
Sabatini made the announcement in a tweet on Tuesday. US 27 ultimately travels from Miami, Florida, to Fort Wayne, Indiana, traversing the United States from south to north. The segment located in Florida would be renamed after Trump in Sabatini’s proposal.
This legislative session I will be sponsoring an amendment to rename U.S. Highway 27 as the “President Donald J. Trump Highway.” Looking forward to working on this important designation honoring one of the greatest Presidents in American History. pic.twitter.com/x2gNzv8pxv

Public infrastructure is increasingly named after Presidents while they’re in office or shortly after their departure. Several schools and highways have been named after former President Barack Obama less than five years after his departure from office. Every President in recent American history has received a highway named in his honor, usually after leaving office.
Republicans have strong majorities in both of the Florida House of Representatives and Senate, ensuring a strong chance that Sabatini’s highway proposal will ultimately succeed and become law.
President Trump is the first President in history from Florida, having changed his state of residency from New York to the southern state during his term in office. The President is slated to begin his post-presidency life by returning to the state on Wednesday, where it’s expected that he’ll reside at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach.
